Portman the frontrunner...

It is early but Natalie Portman appears to be the frontrunner for Best Actress at the Oscars.

It's very interesting to see how Olivia Munn got her job as a correspondent for The Daily Show. Check it out.
So how did she land the gig with Jon Stewart? In part, with a Holocaust quip, she tells GQ. "When we met, Jon mentioned being Jewish, and I asked, 'The Holocaust—did it really happen?' " she recalls. "I mean, clearly it happened, but that's my sense of humor, and it showed I could joke in that Daily Show way."
Print does not do the spoken word justice. "Really" should be italicized.

Interesting. This article covers which episodes were submitted for Emmy consideration. For The Daily Show, it was their episode from May 10, 2010. The Tonight Show With Conan O'Brien submitted the final episode--honestly, how did that episode alone not win?!? SNL submitted the episode hosted by Betty White while The Colbert Report submitted one where President Obama appeared via satellite.
